On the positive side: Nice topography with walls dropping down to -50m, the Skull cave is very interesting.
Good place for freediving for advanced divers.
On the negative side: every island hoping boat anchors on the shallow plateau, all the hard corals were killed by anchors a long time ago. The site if over-fished.. It is be part of the Tanon Strait Marine Park, it has current and it is surrounded by deep water, it should be full of pelagic predators.. But because of constant fishing, it is empty of fish. Divers are lucky if they see a couple of snappers and a skipjack tuna. You ' ll be happy if you like frogfish and nudibranches
Let' s hope that this place will finally get the protection it deserves..

It's an awesome day trip! Take a boat from almost anywhere in Moalboal, sit back, relax and enjoy the 25 to 35 minute ride to Pescador Island. It's just a small little outcrop in the middle of the straight between Cebu and Negros. We don't usually go for the Island itself (there's nothing really on it and it is protected), but it is a favorite spot to hang out, snorkel, dive, and enjoy the beautiful coral reefs surrounding it. I spent my 49th birthday out there. We had three boats full of family and just partied!

We did there 2 dives. First by east side and second one by west side. This island is full of live. I also like chinese tourists drowning on the surface.

Great Dive location. Did it twice. A definite must do!!! The marine life is plentiful. If you take your time and look carefully you can see lots of small creatures.

We went to Pescador as part of a 3 stop boat trip which included turtles, sardines, and Pescador Island. The turtles were very cool, sardines were the real highlight, but the island was a bit underwhelming.

Had some great diving here despite rough seas. Lots of sea turtles and a very large octopus in a cave. Cathedral chimney that started around 37m deep and rose up was pretty cool. Wish I had more time there.

Went to the island by boat with my brother and a friend. I dove down to 33 meters, they went snorkeling. Current was strong but not challenging.

Not much fishes at the site and some coral. Probably due to the selected site and the timing. No current easy to snorkel.

We went with Savedra Dive Center. It is about 5-10 minutes on a boat from the Dive center. I can definitely recommend going to Pescador with this dive crew.
